Well made adorable little bag that works with everything. Can be used as a purse or a lunch bag. I am a nurse in the OR and take it in to work with me filled with everything you can think of. It fits great in my locker and is very durable and stylish. I just ordered several for Christmas gifts.

Rated 3 out of 5 by AmandaTX Disappointing
Ballard priducts are typically very high quality. THe bag is goos but the monogram was shoddy. Not sure if it's due to the canvas fabric or the thread. I ordered with the gold metallic and on the large letter (last name) the edges are jagged - like they ran out of thread before the momogram was done. I got a smaller bag too and that one was fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Charlycalif These bags are have excellent features
I purchased six large totes and had each of them monogramed as gifts. I had purchased one for myself, previously, no monogram, and when I saw them this time, I thought they would make nice gifts for birthdays, etc. The most difficult part was choosing from all the many monograms and thread colors. Upon receiving the totes, I was very pleased, and I am certain the recipients will be pleased, as well. The totes are very well constructed and will hold up for many carries.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tawee Really nice.
The bag was everything I hoped it would be.
It is sturdy and pretty and the Mongram makes it chic.
Price was fantastic!
I will order more for Christmas and wedding gifts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by AnOldSoul Nice size & quality for the money
These medium burlap bags are ample size for everyday purse or tote use. I purchased one for myself and two for gifts and the monograms were beautiful, fast and correct. Everyone is pleased. The burlap is a little itchy, and the handles are thin leather, but overall for the price, I am pleased and consider them a good value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Allyn "The little tote that could"
I have purchased a few of these over the years. So glad Ballard keeps carrying them. They are a great value with the free monogram!. I like the color and size choices and the features like leather handles, zipper and inside pocket. It is not lined but I don't mind. The burlap is sturdy and I get 2 or 3 seasons out of them. And I get many compliments.

Great product! Definitely a great buy and has held up well with leather handles. Because it's black my husband doesn't mind carrying it! We have carried it for over a month in Spain! Ola!

Rated 5 out of 5 by FromOregon Beautiful bag
I had to order this bag twice....my bad the first time. I wanted MONOGRAM and selected an incorrect font for this, so it came looking like initials rather than monogram. I called 800 number and discussed this error with CR, she did say I could return it, that she would make a note in my records for a specialized product to be returned. I decided this was truly my mistake, so I just ordered another with a correct font. It came and it is BEAUTIFUL. It is a Bridal gift for my soon-to-be daughter-in-law. This bag is linen on the outside with a water-proof inside, a pocket inside, zipper closure, and leather handles. I ordered one for myself too.

I bought both the small bag and large tote to have embroidered with my husband's business logo. It has worked very well. The zipper is a good quality
I would like a sturdier handle on the large tote. It is still good though.

The monogrammed jute bags-all sizes-are an exceptional
value and the quality is excellent. I have order several
of these for myself and as gifts. I will certainly continue
to order this nice these nice bags in ever size and various
colors. I might add that the service was very pleasing.

What do you get the daughter-in-law who prefers to choose her own stuff? A nice monogrammed tote bag to carry it! These customized gifts are practical but classy and just can't be the wrong size. This was my first purchase from Ballard, but I have a growing wish list.

I bought these for my bridal party. I'm having a destination wedding and I thought this would be perfect for everyone to carry their stuff to my room to get dressed.
Service was good. Quality of the bag is good. I haven't used mine so I don't know how well it will hold up. I do see that it seems thin as stated in another post, but it is burlap and I only noticed it when holding it up and letting the light shine through. The coating "lining" inside is nice. Free monogramming is awesome. Everyone loved them.

I have purchased this tote for ALL my friends. They all loved them. The colors and the quality are great. It's an especially impressive gift when you choose a monogram. That's not something you receive everyday and that makes it more personal. I wish someone would buy one for me.....

Rated 5 out of 5 by Canjala I'd give these to everyone I know if I had the money
I purchased these large totes and the matching makeup bags for my bridesmaids. Everyone that sees the bag asks me where I got it and says they want one too!
The colors come out true to the scale on the website. The large tote is much larger than expected but I didn't check the size dimensions when ordering. I plan on getting a few of the smaller totes which would most likely serve as over the shoulder purses. The large tote is more like an overnight bag or a "bring everything that you need to the wedding" :) All of my girls liked the color choices that I personalized for them. The monogramming was done well. These products are beyond fantastic for the price!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by MiaNYC Beautiful Bag Zippers broke on first use
I purchased four of these bags for myself and my bridesmaids to use for my wedding. The bags themselves are beautiful (I ordered the gray) however all of our bags' zippers broke literally on the first use! The zipper is so cheap and poorly installed that it goes off track immediately so when you zipper the bag, the zip doesn't stop closed (it opens itself) and then when you try to drag the zipper back it gets stuck. I'm not sure I'm describing the cheap zipper phenomenon clearly, but It was huge bummer b/c the bag itself is nice quality but the bottom line is, if you're purchasing consider it an open top tote, not one with a fictional zipper.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MyView need longer, darker handles on med. tote
I have ordered the med. size tote three different times to use during the summer. It will usually last me 2 summers. I wish the handles were at least an inch longer so as to fit better on my shoulder. The handles are too light in color and would look better if they were medium to dark brown. In the picture on the website, some totes do appear to have darker handles, but when I received my totes, the handles were off-white in color. The totes are of quality construction at a great price. I love having a zipper closure on top. I will buy again.

I purchased this as a gift for a friend. It was so cute that another guest at the party insisted that I tell her where I got it. It's a quality product at a reasonable price. Shipping was fast, too! I'm going to get one for myself next!

Rated 4 out of 5 by AuntLaLa Love but it sheds
I love my Ballard Tote Bag(s). I have three and love them. I get compliments all of the time. My only issue is the jute sheds so I have to extra careful with my bag touching my clothing. The shedding is the only reason I rated it with four stars.

by talieann My Bridesmaids LOVED them!
I ordered a set of the large totes for my Bridesmaids (and one for myself) and the smaller tote for the Flower Girl. I filled them with a robe and flip-flops for hanging out in the bridal suite as we get ready on the big day. The large tote is big enough for the Girls to put other items (like shoes, cosmetic bag, etc.) that they may need to bring.
Very pleased with the monogramming and the quality of the materials. Love that the tote also has a zipper closure.
After the wedding, I'm sure the Girls will use these totes during the summer for the beach or the pool.

Love this bag! What a great value with the low price and free monogram! I use it to to carry things to/from work, and it held catalogs and magazines for a long car trip. Would be a great gift for a friend. May just buy the larger one too!
